Transcendental Meditation Programme - Ireland Translate This Article
29 December 2015
The overview of the Transcendental Meditation technique featured on the official website for the TM programme in Ireland includes a review of beneficial effects of TM on ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). From the introduction:
'ADHD can be caused by a number of factors. Often ADHD is a consequence of stress disrupting the normal functioning of the prefrontal cortex of the brain. However, sometimes there are deeper, more structural problems: ADHD can be linked to insufficient blood flow to the brain and an abnormally low EEG coherence.
'Irrespective of what may be causing the problem, transcending can help, because it essentially restores the brain to its natural setting which effectively impacts all three factors at the same time: the prefrontal cortex, blood flow, and EEG coherence.'
The section on ADHD includes scientific research, discussion by experts, and reports by students with ADHD of positive changes they have experienced after learning the Transcendental Meditation technique.
